Call Us About VELscope & Oral Cancer Screening Today 

  • Recognized by the WHO as a medical device that addresses global health concerns
  • A two-minute exam can assess your overall oral health
  • Visualizes abnormalities in your lips, mouth, and upper throat
  • Features pain-, stain-, and discomfort-free technology
  • Gives dentists the opportunity to diagnose and treat problems before they become larger issues.

Providing enhanced visualization of oral abnormalities like pre-malignant dysplasia and oral cancer, VELscope allows dentists to view problems that may not yet be visible to the naked eye. At Oliverie Dental in Wall, NJ, we know that this technology can detect issues early on, allowing for early diagnosis and treatment of conditions that can progress to oral cancer if not identified quickly.

How does VELscope work?

With a blue light that encourages molecules deep within oral mucosal tissue layers to emit their own light (in shades of red, yellow, and green) VELscope uses a filter that makes these lights visible while highlighting the contrast between tissue that’s healthy and unhealthy.

When used to detect oral cancer, here are some benefits associated with regular VELscope exams:

  • If identified early and while contained to the primary site, the five-year survival rate of oral cancer is approximately 83%.
  • If identified when the cancer has moved to the regional lymph nodes, the five-year survival rate is reduced to approximately 55%.
  • If identified late, the five-year survival rate of oral cancer is low, at approximately 32%.

It’s vital that oral cancer and other abnormalities are discovered as early as possible, and at Oliverie Dental, we have the technology to identify them. Prioritize your health and call us today to schedule an appointment!
